My husband and I have been regularly (at least once a month) using this receipe for more than a year now, and it is a favorite. Nice enough to serve company. Fish is so tender and juicy. We serve this with rice and a green veggie, like broccoli. When I saw that only 3 people had rated this one, I had to write in. A definite 5 Star.
